Hybrid – Level One Technician Course

TB100 system for Euro 5 & 6 buses

Three day course
On-site or classroom based
IMI approved course

Delegates will learn how the Alexander Dennis Hybrid bus works, the benefits of Hybrid buses and the principles of how the hybrid system reduces the amount of fuel used, dramatically reducing emissions.

A three day course aimed at competent Technicians. Delegates will be encouraged to develop their understanding by participating in practical exercises & discussion throughout the course. The use of a Hybrid bus is desirable for this course, but we cannot always guarantee to have one available. We may therefore ask customers to provide the bus, in which case training can be delivered either in Guildford or on-site at your location subject to suitable training facilities being made available.

Delegates who attend and pass this course will be able to safely shut-down the hybrid HV system, carry out disconnection/re-connection of the HV system, remove HV access covers, undertake “touch Testing” with a digital multimeter, remove/replace Hybrid main units including the batteries (ESS unit) and carry out diagnostic and fault finding activities using diagnostic software (IDS) on a laptop. It does not allow delegates to strip or repair any of the hybrid main units.
